Far Cry New Dawn! 

The newest Far Cry, will be a direct sequel to Far Cry 5, and taking place after the devastating end for the previous game. The cult Edens Gate is returning as the big baddie, and all around the game looks amazing! I cannot wait to finish off the story of Edens Gate, and see what takes place. Far Cry New Dawn will be out Feb. 15 2019!

Anthem Get’s More News. 

The next (and best) looking trailer for Anthem came out, setting some of the scene for what this game will be. This trailer makes the game seem way darker than I first anticipated, and actually for the first time I’m pretty excited for what this game could be. Anthem will be out on February 22nd 2019!

Crash Team Racing is Back! 

This game used to be a childhood favorite for so many, and now we can all relive those 1999 memories soon! Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is coming on June 21st, 2019!

Obsidian’s New Title Seems Very Similar…

The new Obsidian title is called The Outer Worlds, and it looks like a Fallout in space! With similar RPG elements to Fallout New Vegas. I Cannot wait to play this game! The Outer Worlds is set to release sometime in 2019!
